Real-time notifications 🔔

Customizing your feed just levelled up!

Getting the most out of daily.dev just got a whole lot easier!

With our new feed-filters set-up / onboarding screens it is now super easy for new users (and people who haven't created a daily.dev account yet) to personalize their feed and supercharge their reading!

Choose your topics, set some preferences and away you go!

Why? Well a personalized feed results in articles that are tailored to your interests, and results in reading 2-3 times as many articles a week!

We want our community to consume all the high-quality (and relevant) content they can each week so they can stay up to date or even ahead of the curve!

That is why we have invested the time in improving our onboarding / feed setup, so it is far easier to make the feed, your feed.

Note: If you want more information on how to personalize the feed to your interests, check out the filters documentation

Authentication just got easier!




facebook, github, apple and google logos merged with keys side by side. Text "Multi-Auth Is Here: Logging in to daily.dev just got much easier"

We just leveled up the daily.dev authentication system!

Now you can log in with Google, Facebook, Github, Apple or email.

But wait, there is more!

Not only can you log in with your favorite service provider, you can now connect multiple authentication providers!

This is super useful if you are logged in with say Facebook on your phone but don't use Facebook on your PC, so you could log in with GitHub there!

Oh, and we fixed a few bugs while we were at it to make it far easier to change your email address etc. too!

A key improvement if you ask me (pun intended!)

Community Picks 💎




Changelog cover.png

We are super excited to share our newest feature with you, Community Picks!

Up until now our super smart feed algorithm decided what goes into the daily.dev feed.

Community Picks changes that!

Now our community (you) can also add articles to the feed!

If you have enough reputation you will gain the Scout privilege, allowing you to add up to 3 articles per day to the daily.dev feed!

Oh and did we mention that can by any article from any website (as long as it is about development and high quality of course!)

Read more about Community Picks in our Documentation.

So if you have 250 reputation or more, go Scout out some amazing articles, submit them to Community Picks and help other developers find even more amazing resources!

New Toasts! 🍞

We wanted to improve the notifications you receive when an action is successful, fails etc.

So we created some new toast notifications on daily.dev!

Not only that, our new toasts also have a (not so well kept) secret!

If you head over to "Customize" in the menu on daily.dev, at the bottom you will see an option "Automatically dismiss notifications".

Turning this off gives you as much time as you need to undo an action, redo an action, see whether your comment was sent successfully etc!

We think our new notifications look pretty slick and improve the UX of our site and app massively! Let us know what you think!

(I was going to add a joke about butter on toast here, but I didn't want you to spread it!)

The Companion Widget is here! 🤯

Major Announcement


daily.dev has just added a new feature that will change the way you discuss things forever!

Let me introduce you to the companion widget!

The companion allows you to upvote, comment on and bookmark articles…all while on the article itself!

No more switching back to daily.dev to leave a comment or an upvote, just look to the side of your page, and if daily.dev has the page in its feed the companion widget will be there!

Watch this quick 2 minute video explaining how to activate the companion widget, and what new superpowers it unlocks!

Want to try it out?

You can find full instructions on how to activate the companion in the daily.dev docs.

If you want to get started quickly, go to the daily.dev extension, look at the top right of the screen and you should see a purple button. Click that button and follow the instructions to enable the companion!

Once you have activated the companion, it will redirect you to a page introducing all of the features of the companion.

On the page you are redirected to you can try out the companion widget and leave a comment letting us know what you think of our shiny new feature if you want!

Article Modal




Article Modal.png

Something new just "popped up" at daily.dev!

When you click on a card in one of the feeds to comment, we will now show you our new article modal, instead of a new page!

This makes using our app even quicker.

But wait…there is more!

We have introduced next and previous article buttons, coupled with left and right arrow key navigation! (or j and k)

We also made the UI far more intuitive with a nice big "read article" button once you have read the TLDR, comments etc. and decide this article is worth a read!

Faster, easier to use and prettier! 🤩

Reputation update! 🌟

They say reputation is everything…and we couldn't agree more!

That is why we have overhauled our reputation points system to encourage more contributions and interaction from our community!

All of your hard-earned reputation points will be recalculated to match our new scoring and we even introduced a couple of new ways to earn those much coveted reputation points on daily.dev!

Find out what has changed and the new scoring in the daily.dev docs!
